imaging begins with understanding your breasts
exploring the difference SenoBright makes, let’s start with the breast basics:
Your breasts have fatty tissue and dense tissue. Different women have different
ratios of fatty to dense tissue in their breasts, though in general, breasts
become less dense with age. Over 40% of women have dense breasts – a high
proportion of dense breast tissue.1
typical breast cancer screening begins with a standard mammogram, which may be
followed up with an ultrasound if the doctor decides on the need to investigate
further. Depending on different factors, such as your fat to dense tissue ratio
in your breasts, the accuracy of these first line techniques may differ and
results may be considered abnormal.
this primary workup, further testing might be needed to get a clearer picture.
One such option is a SenoBright exam, which helps improve a doctor’s ability to
make an accurate diagnosis.
